As one of the oldest established cycling organizations in the Madison, WI area, the Brazen Dropouts is a team that can appeal to the experienced racer or anyone just looking to get into the sport! Join us on a social ride or subscribe to our ride list to keep up with organized rides around Madison.  Learn more about the team by reading our values and checking out the other pages on this site.

We primarily travel throughout Wisconsin for WCA road and cyclocross races, as well as the WORS mountain bike racing series. We strive to give back to the Wisconsin cycling community by hosting road and cyclocross races and by hosting one of the largest bike swaps in the Midwest every year in January. We hope to see you out on the road or at our next meeting!
